Default Trump's glorious 1988 Cadillac limousines

Trump's glorious 1988 Cadillac limousines may be auctioned

Published December 14, 2016

FoxNews.com

President-elect Trump will be getting a new limousine in a couple of weeks, but it won’t be the first time he’s had a stretch Cadillac.

In the 1980s, the then-NJ casino magnate worked with Cadillac and Dillinger-Gaines Coachbuilders to develop two “Trump” limousines that he planned to use to shuttle VIPs around.

The Trump Golden Series and Trump Executive Series both were rolling offices fitted with all of the high-tech features of the day, including VCRs, Fax Machines and paper shredders. Car phones, too.

Trump described the Golden Series as the “most opulent stretch limousine ever made” and the Executive Series as a “slightly less lavish” take on the same design. He planned on buying 50 of the cars, but only two prototypes were made in 1988 and the order for the rest never happened. He did by one of them for his father, though.

And soon it could be yours!

According to an article in the New York Post, the two limos are now owned by an anonymous collector in the United Kingdom who is considering auctioning them off, given the results of the recent election.

Photos of what appears to be the Executive Series today indicates that it is well-worn, but in good condition. The last time the Golden Series was listed for sale on the internet, when it was still in the United States, it had 22,000 miles on it and the asking price was $80,000, but efforts to reach the previous owner for more information have been unsuccessful.

Unfortunately, the chance that Trump himself will buy one and turn it into the next presidential state car are unlikely as work on an updated “Beast” is well underway, with the armored limo expected to make its debut on Inauguration Day.

Check the wire wheels and the Vogue Tyres! Too bad no interior shots bet it would be worth a look.

I just have no interest in the executive style cars. I remember one time some saying to me there is even a bottle in the rack like it was a big thing.
